twister in borden, indiana, late friday and this morning. nbc news is confirming at least 32 deaths in three states. the storms moved east overnight in charlotte, north carolina. the severe weather destroyed homes and damaged others and some brand new video shows several dozen trees laying on the ground and debris littering that ground there. many parts of tennessee were affected from the city of ottawa. we just received this video showing damage filling the street and stuck with trees. many homes lost parts of their roof, but most devastation is in southern indiana. this in the town of henriville and we're getting a good look at the damage and entire homes are ripped from their foundations and are surrounded by dozens of downed trees. the most dramatic image may be the school busses tossed around like toys. children escaped to safety just moments before the storm struck. those who survived are stunned at the destruction, but they do remain hopeful. here's what they told lester holt. >> i put her in the basement after i checked on the back of the house and all of a sudden i started
week, the ousted republican secretary of state in indiana was sentenced for voter fraud. he had been convicted of six felonies, including voter fraud, and he's the guy who runs elections in the state of indiana. mitch daniels, the republican governor in indiana, had refused to appoint anybody permanently to replace this guy once he was convicted of voter fraud. the governor saying that if the felony convictions could get knocked down to misdemeanors, maybe, then he would be happy to reinstate this guy to run indiana's elections. ultimately, late last week, the republican secretary of state did not get his felony convictions busted down to misdemeanors, so he can't get back into office. and now indiana might get a democrat installed in the secretary of state's seat instead. but mitch daniels saying he wanted to put a convicted voter fraud felon in charge of the state's elections, that probably does not help mitch daniels' vice presidential chances either. which brings, of course, to the other great milk toast hope for the vice presidential running mate. that would be the forced ultras

a twister moments before it ravaged henryville, indiana. one of the victims there, baby angel died on sunday despite hopes they would see this baby girl survive. earlier on "the today show," her neighbor spoke about the devastating loss. >> knowing all five of them didn't make it and i'm the only one that did is really hard on me. i feel some sense of guilt for bringing them into my house and then they died from there. but at the same time, i think trar trailer would not have been safer. it also disappeared. i just can't believe the rest of them didn't make it. it's sad to hear the whole family passed away and i was holding their hands two seconds before they died. >> just heartbreaking. 39 died in the storms. the death toll stretches across five states. 21 in kentucky. 13 in indiana. three in ohio. one each in alabama and georgia. and today snow is adding insult to injury. while it's only a couple inches, the weight of it is the last thing people living there need. just take a look at what it looks like when weather like that breaks out. nbc is lucky to have experts to give us context on th

touchdowns, at least 32 people are dead, 14 in kentucky and indiana each, three more in ohio and one in alabama. small towns in southern indiana like henryville are facing utter devastation with homes leveled and entire neighborhoods reduced to rubble. we'll keep you updated on this, this morning as developments come in. >>> but right now i want to turn to one state in particular. this week started with sad news of a different kind from ohio. three were murdered and two injured in a tragic act of violence at chardon high school. and americans turned our eyes to ohio in sadness and mourning. but politicians have had their eye on ohio for much longer. ohio is the pairn yell bellwether, a state rich in kront ra indications. they have labor yunz and rural farmers, ohio is football. highway ho is rock 'n' roll. a decade in decline in manufacturing has hallowed ohio's cities, the poverty in the prairie is striking. ohio is free soil where the und underground railroad ended, it is also the home of old ethnic neighborhoods still defined by the parishes of the church. and ohio is swing voters

. frankly, rick santorum's campaign is lucky he is even on the ballot at all in the state of indiana. they had to contest the findings of the largest county in indiana because that county had initially said he had not turned in enough signatures to get on the ballot there. the rick santorum campaign is a mess. the rick santorum campaign is like a formula one race and everybody is in a formula one car, rick santorum is in a pinewood derby car. whatever you think about him as a candidate his campaign cannot seem to put its pants on one leg at a time. they can't do the basic stuff of running for president. the stuff that has nothing to do with whether or not you were popular, whether or not you have a lot of money, just means you're together enough to do the logistical paperwork, they have not been able to do that. frankly that makes it more amazing mitt romney is having a hard time beating this guy. but in the republican nominating process, rick santorum being a mess of a campaign has sort of been the least messy of all their messes. in a normal year with a normal political party runni

officials not by voters. indeed the secretary of state in indiana was charged with voter fraud. it's a misplaced remedy and we have to throw heat and light on it. in maine, where you are having a history of same-day registration, it was put to a vote of the people of maine, maine rejected it. so, the voters across nation, the people across the nation are seeing what it's all about. >> the the signal that we should be sending is vote. the issue is participation, it has been a scandal in the country of the lack of voting compared to what the other people overseas are trying to get. >> this is a year where we need to be good citizen ises, we need to be participating, thises a year when we -- this is a year when we need to step up to be a part of the conversation. this year of state of black of america will be at howard university on wednesday night, great institution with the student s. we are bringing the message to the campus. >> it's great to see you, thank you for visiting. >> thank you. >> and we will be right back. this is $100,000. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. t
jail in la port, indiana. la port county jail is losing prisoners. one prisoner identified him himself as another prisoner. having thus tricked a corrections officer, he was accidentally set free. a couple weeks after that another prisoner was allowed to walk out of the la port county jail because he had the same last name as the guy who actually had served his time and was supposed to get out. and this week the south bend tribune reports a third person was erroneously mistakenly released from jail. the mistake wasn't even caught until police turned up at the prison to pick up this guy only to be told the guy was missing. missing from prison? the first two prisoners who were accidentally released were found immediately. but the third guy, still out there. prison officials blame mistakes on overcrowding. but unless these prisoners were literally like squeezed out of the jail like lime juice from a lime wedge, i'm not sure this overcrowding business is a very good excuse for losing prisoners. oddly compelling and creepy crimes can make for good creepy tv segments on friday nights, but ho

conservative enough. richard nixon's favorite mayor is apparently not conservative enough for the indiana republican party. i'm still sort of shell shocked by that. lugar's standing up, but are there others that need to do that? >> they do. and what you'll find is the base of the party does get excited when you talk about the conservative economic policies that people like lugar do support. i mean, the keystone pipeline. we're for the keystone pipeline. let's talk about the keystone pipeline. the president messed up there. he really messed up. he stuck his foot in it. if romney just fixated on the keystone pipeline, we'd be against obama, we'd be talking about the right things, and the conservatives who may be somewhat excited about the fact that, you know, originally, we were saying the right thing on the contraception thing too. it was an overreach of contraception thing too. it was an overreach of government. that's really the big issue there. if we had stuck with that part of it, we might have been okay. stick with the keystone pipeline, that's a great issue. and the base was excited

or friends you know someone that lives in southern indiana, southern ohio, central kentucky, much of central tennessee, and even central and northern portions of alabama make sure they know they have the threat for large damaging tornadoes today and your safety plan for you and your family because that's going to be the concern today. another tornado outbreak. again, that's going to start later this afternoon. the eastern seaboard, you're fine. willie, looks like the storms from new york southwards to d.c. will come through early saturday morning. we'll have updates and i'll be here throughout the day tracking these tornadoes. >> all right. we'll be just fine with a little weather thinking about the people in the tornado regions. good warning bill. we'll back with you on "morning joe." >>> turn to sports. president obama took a break from election year poll it ticks to sit down at the white house with espn sports guy bill simmons. the two got deep into the throwing out of first pitches and who gets credit for the lin sanity and, of course, to the president's own chicago bulls. >> over the la

, illinois, southern indiana, kentucky, west tennessee, all the way into arkansas and mississippi, you haven't even gotten into this event yet. like april 27th of last year when we had the big outbreak of tornadoes, we had these preliminary events. wind squall lines early in the morning. a few tornadoes before the main event came in. so this is going to be a long afternoon. it's going to erupt very quickly really because it's really almost game time for the main event we think as we go through the next hour. we'll start to see some of these cells pop up in a hurry across parts of illinois. this is going to be a dangerous day. what we learn from april 27th is we may have tornadoes here that people need to be underground for. they need to be below ground level. my biggest concern are all these schools in tennessee and kentucky and alabama that are letting students out early. it's a tricky situation because, a, you don't want them out there in a bus going home with tornadoes on the ground. b, are they actually going to a safer structure. anyone in a mobile home today needs to have a plan to go

to be taken to the federal penitentiary in indiana. >> have people been about, especially what we've learned, that bales' lawyer said his client has these memories problems that stem from a concussion predating these attacks. there is this lack of physical evidence, and the fingerprints, the crime scene basically, that can't be investigated. what are government officials saying about that? >> well, they are obviously skeptical, number one, of the allegations that he had some sort of concussive head injury in a vehicle accident. they say there is no record of that. they say on brown's contention that there is no physical evidence, there is no forensic evidence, they say that they have shell casings that were apparently, they say have been determined to have been fired from staff sergeant bales' weapon. they do not have, they admit, access to the bodies of the dead. but as we're learning through these charges, he is facing six charges of attempted murder. so that there are six afghan villagers who were wounded by staff sergeant bales and conceivably could testify that it was staff sergeant bal
